Olena Lytvynenko, the Kyiv Region judge who tried to ground Ukraine’s low-cost airline SkyUp last May, has been fired by the High Council of Justice. Lytvynenko tried to ground the airline based on the complaint of a local woman, Oksana Pasenko. RFE’s Scheme reporters soon discovered the flight did not exist, that Pasenko did not have a passport, and that she had never flown on an airplane. It is not clear if a bribe was made to the judge.
